Rambling a lot

  • Life has been crazy busy keeping up with the 3 year old and the almost 2 month old. 
  • Katy slept for 5 straight hours last night, it was great except when I woke up just before 3am and realized she hadn't waken at midnight like she usually does.  We just started medicine for thrush and I freaked out thinking she had a reaction or spit it up and choked on it.  She was sleeping just fine in her crib.
  • This thrush thing is crazy, I think we may have been suffering from it since she was born, but I didn't know about it.  I thought I hurt myself with my pump so I disregarded my pain during nursing.  Finally I had enough and looked it up and found out that it could be the thrush.  Katy has been fussy and gassy for a while now so I'm thinking that is the cause and hoping the thrush treatment will make her happier and help her sleep better.
  • We have a busy week ahead.  We are going to a 1 year old birthday party on Tuesday evening, Katy has her 2 month checkup on Wednesday which requires a trip to the big city which is 75 miles away, and Thursday we are heading out for a mini trip to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary.  We are going to Utah/Colorado to go to Dinosaur National Monument, then to a town in Colorado that Dustin just applied for a job at so we can check it out since it wasn't on our most desirable list.  We are going to stop off at my brother's house on the way home, so I'm looking forward to the family time too.
  • In addition to the Colorado job Dustin applied for another one in Wyoming.  They are both with the BLM.  Neither place was on our original most desirable location list, but we can make it work if he gets one of them.  
  • Katy is smiling a lot more now, it's not just random any more.  

  • Austin has been really acting out a lot lately.  I have been getting more thorough with my disciplining.  It's frustrating, but I know it's his age and missing all the attention from when he was an only child.  Some days are definitely better than others too.  He still melts my heart all the time too.


  1. Such a cute picture of Katy! The discipline thing is hard. Sometimes being with them all the time makes it that much harder because you seem to be doing it all day long. Hang in there... it will pay off in the end.

    Good luck on the job front!

  2. Have fun on your road trip! You should email me and tell me where in WY you applied! :)

    As far as Austin, it will get least it did with Marlee. Not that I don't still have moments with her, but it will help when Katy doesn't need as much attention because she goes longer in between feedings, and you will get more sleep. Being sleep deprived with the 2nd I think is the hardest part. Hang in there! :)

  3. Oh, and Katy is adorable! And Austin is getting so big! it's crazy! He of course is a cutie too! :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
